Re: Towing Question

I have the firestone airbags, day star cradles and airlift controller.
So far so good. Can easily level the truck or even raise the rear enough for some rake.

Re: GPS

I've used Delorme PN40 and PN60 and Garmin 62stc. I really liked the maps on the delorme and I like the gps unit itself. I found it complicated to share files and keep my maps updated. The garmin works. Its simple. Garmin basecamp is cool and its easy to export the internal memory to google earth.
